Greetings from Smithfield Manor,

 

It is my pleasure to announce that we have purchased a label maker/heat press for Resident laundry.  Resident Council and SMI partnered to make this service available. Thank you to the Resident Council for helping us improve our laundry services for each one in the facility!

 

I am asking for your help as family members of our Residents. It is my desire to have every Resident with labeled clothing, and other items that go to the laundry.  If you could help us by getting a number of how many pieces of clothing, personal blankets, etc. need a label, and give it to our Receptionist in writing, including the name for the label, we can then begin the process.  Please do not bring the items to the front desk, just a number and name. As new items are purchased and brought in, please stop at the Receptionist’s desk with the new clothing and give her the name for processing, leaving the clothing with her.

 

Our Laundry Supervisor, Pamela, will be heat pressing the labels on the clothing on Wednesdays.  We ask for your patience as we begin this new service.  It is our hope that we will cut down on the items that get lost or not returned to the correct room.

 

We are excited to be offering this service to our Residents, and you the families!

It is the policy of Smithfield Manor to adhere to the below listed Federal and State guidelines as it relates to community transmission and masking.  While the community transmission rate is below a “High” status and the facility remains out of outbreak status, Smithfield Manor will not require masking.

Any resident, visitor or staff member may choose to continue to utilize source control to include masking, regardless of community transmission status.

CDC Recommendations

When SARS-CoV-2 Community Transmission levels are high, source control is recommended for everyone in a healthcare setting when they are in areas of the healthcare facility where they could encounter patients.

  • HCP could choose not to wear source control when they are in well-defined areas that are restricted from patient access (e.g., staff meeting rooms) if they do not otherwise meet the criteria described below and Community Levels are not also high. When Community Levels are high, source control is recommended for everyone.

When SARS-CoV-2 Community Transmission levels are not high, healthcare facilities could choose not to require universal source control.  However, even if source control is not universally required, it remains recommended for individuals in healthcare settings who:

  • Have suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection or other respiratory infection (e.g., those with runny nose, cough, sneeze); or
  • Had close contact (patients and visitors) or a higher-risk exposure (HCP) with someone with SARS-CoV-2 infection, for 10 days after their exposure; or
  • Reside or work on a unit or area of the facility experiencing a SARS-CoV-2 outbreak; universal use of source control could be discontinued as a mitigation measure once no new cases have been identified for 14 days; or
  • Have otherwise had source control recommended by public health authorities

 

 

                                                     NC DHHS Community Transmission and Masking

  • If the facility’s county COVID-19 Community Transmission is high, everyone in a healthcare setting should wear face coverings or masks.
  •  If the facility’s county COVID-19 Community Transmission is not high, the safest practice is for residents and visitors to wear face coverings or masks, however, the facility could choose not to require visitors wear face coverings or masks while in the facility, except during an outbreak. The facility’s policies regarding face coverings and masks should be based on recommendations from the CDC, state and local health departments, and individual facility circumstances.
  • Regardless of Community Transmission, residents and visitors may choose not to wear face coverings or masks and/or have close contact (including touch) when alone in the resident’s room or in a designated visitation area. Residents (or their representative) and their visitors should be educated about the risks of physical contact and not wearing masks prior to the visit. If a roommate is present during the visit, it is safest for the visitor to wear a face covering or mask.
